Josh Peck has shared the Tabata-style workout he uses to build muscle – and it looks pretty intense:
The star graced our screens as one-half of the dynamic Nickelodeon duo Drake and Josh.
Now, in a recent interview with Men’s Health, Peck is offering an insight into his workout routine.
Relatable as ever, Peck says before offering some workout tips: “I was an active kid, I enjoyed playing sports, I just wasn’t very good at them.”
Shout out to all the kids on the bench during sports day.
“So when I eventually lost 100 pounds, that journey was very specific to me, because I had to learn how to do one push up, or one pull up like I had no baseline fitness,” he continued.
While the star was initially into cross-fit and bench pressing, he ‘tore his peck’, yep Peck tore his peck, and decided to ‘chill out’ on his regime.
“Now I’m in my 30s I’m into more of a Tabata approach.”
A Tabata-style workout is where you train for 20-seconds and rest for 10 seconds.
So, what type of exercises is Peck doing?
“The things I’ve tried to embrace are the suckier movements, like push-ups, pull-ups.”
We’d rather not do either, but they seem to be working for Peck, and his pecks.
“I try to do for legs, air squats. I try to do self-sustaining workouts and as warm-ups go I love hitting the heavy bag.”
Cut to Peck boxing and explaining that he warms up by doing about six rounds, for three minutes apiece.
While we would also rather not do this part, we would be open to playing the Rocky sound track and staring at a punchbag.
From here on out, Peck’s training amps up, and if this is a chilled-out version of his earlier workouts, we don’t want to know what he was doing before.
His weightlifting exercises include a kettlebell clean, compound lifts, and a military press for good measure.
“Yeah, I mean like all of these workouts that I have grown to love, even something as simple as a push-up, because I had to earn it, I just naturally wasn’t capable of doing it the way most young guys are able to knock out 20-30 push-ups without thinking.
“I think of them as like a standard in my workout, because I never want to get rusty or let them go.”
And judging by how determined Peck looks, he’s not going to either.
